CLEMSON, S.C. — With college football going at full speed, there are 19 games in Week 9 that will feature a top 25 team.

Online sportsbooks offer different betting odds for all of the games that feature top-25 teams such as the standard moneyline, spread and game total bets. They also offer different prop bets on the games as well.

Not to mention, Clemson has also won the last nine matchups between the two.

Looking at the game, arguably the best quarterback in all of college football, Trevor Lawrence, will not be suiting up as he has tested positive for COVID-19 which means they will turn to a true freshmen quarterback in D.J.
